It took heavy firepower to bump Dark Knight from the number one slot. It's a good
thing Ben Stiller, director and co-writer of Tropic Thunder, was heavily armed with this fresh, comical spoof of Hollywood. With clever and often over the top performances from
Robert Downey, Jr., Tom Cruise, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Nick Nolte, and Mathew McConaughey, this comedy did not let us down. The cast, who think they are filming a war movie, are unaware that they have been dropped in the middle of real fighting to make the film more realistic and bail out a struggling director. With one-liners people will be quoting for years and laughs coming in waves, the entertainment value is off the charts. Get there early for yet another parody of Hollywood as Stiller and company unveil some very funny movie trailers.
